2024 Garden Shares
We are changing the way we do things for 2024. We have simplified our offering. We now offer two distinct share types. Our most popular share type is the Classic Garden Share with a total of 20 weeks of farm fresh organic produce.  Not to mention a bonus third “winter” share for early birds only. The Classic share type also has the possibility of four week spring add-on, resulting in 24 weeks of fresh organic produce. The other possibility is the Bountiful Feast add-on which augments the first 12 weeks with an additional 4 items/week.

The second share type is the Essential Garden share, or a half share. It is identical to our Classic Garden share, except that it is collected every other week, beginning on June 21.

How it works

Reserving your family’s veggie box is simple. Scroll down and select what type of share you want. Click on the reserve my share link and fill out the web form. Choose a pick-up location in Almonte, Carleton Place or at the farm in Pakenham. Send us a $100 deposit (no reservation is confirmed without one.) The remaining balance can be paid in installments.  The seasonal deadlines for share payments are as follows;
Spring Add-on: May 1
Essential, Classic or Bountiful Feast shares: June 1
Classic shares 2nd payment if they choose the two payment option: Aug 1.

This is our base model Garden share. It runs for 20 weeks. It includes between 7-10 fresh produce items each week in the summer and then we double you up  with 14-20 fresh produce items every other week in the autumn. It will have fewer items in June when the garden is just warming up and more items in August when everything is abundant. In the early autumn we will still be harvesting fresh produce from out of doors, mixed with some storage vegetables. Towards the end of the season we will be harvesting fresh produce from our greenhouses, mixed with some hardy fresh vegetables from out of doors, as well as some storage vegetables.

For those with larger families or folks who gop through a lot of veggies, who would like to augment their Classic Share during the summer season we offer the Bountiful Feast add-on, which adds an additional 4 items to your classic share each week. This add-on is ONLY available with a classic share, and is not available by itself.

This is an early season add-on that runs for 4 weeks before our main season garden shares begin. As the majority of the produce from this share comes from our greenhouses, there are only 30 spots available on a first come first serve basis.

For this share type we offer farm pick-up on Thursdays only. It is not delivered.
